The Ukrainian chief engineer of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant has been appointed as the new director
The Ukrainian chief engineer of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which is occupied by the Russian military, has agreed to take over the administration of the Moscow-taken-over infrastructure, according to a press release issued on Wednesday. “I have made my decision. In my opinion, this is the only possible and correct decision: to accept the proposal (…) to operate the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant”Yuri Ternichuk announced in a press release published on the Telegram account of the power plant.
The information was released by Russian nuclear operator Rosenergoatom, which has been managing the de facto site since it was occupied by Russian forces. Yuri Chernytsuk was until then the chief engineer of the nuclear power plant, which is the largest in Europe and is located in an area that claims to be connected to Russia by the same name. He felt that he had to take charge of the site to ensure proper operation of the plant under very difficult conditions. “We have done and are doing the possible and the impossible so that the world knows nothing new [accidents nucléaires comme] Fukushima and Chernobyl »He said in the statement.
For months, Moscow and Qi have accused each other of bombing the plant, fueling fears of a nuclear accident. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly condemned this role “unacceptable” These strikes. On November 17, it adopted a resolution calling for Russia to withdraw from the Ukrainian power station in Zaporizhia.
On October 5, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree formally acquiring the nuclear power plant for Russia, and a few days later the plant’s general manager, Ihor Murachev, appointed by Q, was kidnapped. “Russian Patrol”, according to Ukrainian operator Energoatom, has finally been released. According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Russia has deployed 500 Russian soldiers at the site of the Zaporizhia power plant.
Calls to demilitarize the site have been multiplied by the IAEA and the international community, so far without success.
